Read aloud

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - Bedtime Routine -

I hear some mums say, ‘I feel em­bar­rassed read­ing to my child.’ But you don’t have to be great at read­ing aloud, just start read­ing the story and you’ll be fine. You’ll soon get into it, and when your child smiles and gig­gles, you’ll re­ally start to en­joy it. And if you have a tod­dler, when he looks over your shoul­der to fol­low the words and pic­tures in the book, you can’t over­state how good it feels. When your child is ex­cited about what you’re read­ing, his face is so fo­cused and he’s con­cen­trat­ing; it feels like a magic mo­ment.
